Couples & wedding photography in Maui is a very special event and capturing beautiful, memorable, keepsake photographs of that special occasion is what Maui Island Portraits does best.

A Romantic Photo Shoot

One of the fun activities for couples to do while on Maui is a romantic photo shoot at one of Maui’s world-class beaches during sunset. Here, Allesandro and Raluca, celebrating her birthday, and their time together on this magic isle of Maui, took some time to capture these, and more, memorable keepsake images. A romantic photo shoot activity is fun with a take home product, ie, the digital images,which are theirs to keep, they can enjoy for a lifetime.

A Palauea Beach Wedding on Maui

Brad and Nancy were married in a small, simple, sweet ceremony at Palauea Beach, aka White Rock Beach, in south Maui. The weather cooperated nicely and the ceremony concluded in time for some nice pictures of the couple along the shoreline at sunset.

Couples Photography At The Beach

I had the pleasure of taking pictures of Joe & Caitlin in 2011. We captured some really nice images at DT Fleming Beach Park, and ‘dragon teeth’ – a rocky outcropping on a bluff below the Ritz-Carlton resort in Kapalua. Returning to Maui for their 25th anniversary this year, with her parents, we captured some images at Launiupoko Beach Park, just outside of historic Lahaina Town. Maui is blessed with dozens of beautiful areas ideal for couples photography at the beach. Thank you Joe and Caitlin for thinking of me for your photography, again, here on Maui.

Todd & Diana’s Morning Photo Shoot at Launiupoko Beach Park



Launiupoko Beach Park is a very pleasant location; it is ideal for kids, families, sun bathers, surfers, and swimmers, and a great place for both family and couples portrait photography. Although sunset’s can be spectacular, a morning photo shoot at Launiupoko Beach Park offers it’s own special qualities of light and shadow, color and hue and is often not nearly as crowded as the afternoon may be. So, Todd and Diana opted for the morning light and we met there at 7am. At sunset time, we start in the park, and end at the beach; in the morning, we start on the beach, and end in the park.

Paul & Marley at Launiupoko Beach Park

Paul said he was a personal trainer and wanted some pictures with he and his wife, also a fitness instructor. I didn’t realize Paul was one of those extra-ordinary physiques. Oh, you may see some like him now and then on television or a magazine; but, rarely in everyday life. This kind of ‘body sculpting’ takes a lot of dedication and commitment. So, Paul and Marley at Launipoko Beach Park was a one unlike any other. Launiupoko Beach Park is a one of Maui’s sweet spots. When the west side waves are breaking high enough, surfing is really good there. A breakwall makes for a delightful kiddy pool. The park has a large expanse of tree shaded grassy areas with picnic tables, barbecue pits, and a view of Lanai and Kahoolawe islands. And, of course, it has a very pleasing sandy beach.

So, Paul, Marley and I spent about an hour at sunset time talking story and taking pictures….
